USDA extends acreage reporting deadline to Aug. 2

Risk management deadline remains unchanged

USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan Garcia announced an extension of the final crop acreage reporting date through Aug. 2, 2013. According to Indiana FSA State Executive Director Julia A. Wickard, “This is a welcome relief for many Indiana producers and our county office staff so sufficient time is available to file an accurate and complete acreage report to maintain eligibility for many USDA programs.”

This extension provides FSA participants an additional 18 calendar days to submit their annual report of acreage to their local FSA offices. The previous acreage reporting date deadline was July 15, 2013. These acreage reports are necessary to determine and maintain eligibility for various programs such as the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Program (DCP); Marketing Assistance Loans (MAL’s); the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE); the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and the Non-insured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP).

Annually, producers file these reports which include all crops and land uses, including prevented and failed acreage reports. “Many producers are just finalizing decisions about planting late season and double crop soybeans due to wetter than normal growing season”, stated Wickard.

This acreage report extension does not extend dates for crop insurance through the Risk Management Agency (RMA). The deadline for RMA acreage reporting was July 15, 2013 for most spring planted crops. Farmers are reminded to report any loss within 72 hours of discovery to their insurance company so that a loss adjuster can inspect the crop before it is destroyed. Producers are encouraged to contact their insurance agent if there are any questions about coverage, prevented planting, or claim reporting.

For questions about acreage reporting requirements or any FSA program, producers should contact their local FSA county office or visit FSA online at www.fsa.usda.gov.
